Beinn Bhreac

Rising to a height of 931m (3054 feet) to the east of Glen Derry in the Grampian Mountains of Aberdeenshire, the surface of Beinn Bhreac consists of peat bogs, turf and endless pools of water, which gave rise to its Gaelic name meaning "speckled hill". It qualifies as a Munro and comprises two summits, both marked by cairns, the lesser (Western Top) rising to 927m (3041 feet). The mountain is connected to Beinn a' Chaorainn by a vast medium level plateau originally called Moine Bhealaidh but now referred to as Yalla Moss.
